Keychron V1

Great keyboard, feels great quality and straight forward shipping. Had an issue with local courier which I tried to email Keychron but had no reply, unfortunate but it resolved itself in the end so no hard feelings

Dont get the brown keys, keyboard is overrated

I got this keyboard after seeing everyone on youtube lose their mind over it. I got the knob version with brown switches. Those suck, the tactility is not pronounced and they are SCRATCHY, i have a 15 dollar keyboard that has a ton more tactility.
As for the keyboard, it is overrated to say the least. No wireless or blutooth options, the shipping costs a lot, and it takes a long time to arrive because it is always shipped from china. Take my advice and get the epomaker TH80, it is cheaper, sounds WAY better, arrives in 3 days from amazon with free shipping, connects to 2.4 dongle and 3 bluetooth devices and wired. It also looks better and the switches are a dream to type on.
Don't do my mistake. This keyboard is not worth it.

All-Around Customizable Keyboard

To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component to be easily assembled so you can customize and adjust any or every parts the way you want.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, its premium rotary encoder allows you to customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software with ease.

Keychron V1 Custom Mechanical Keyboard

You can easily customize the V1's knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A brand new powerful ultra-low-power Arm structure MCU armed with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is up to 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps

For the new double-shot PBT keycaps, we built a new profile. It has a similar height to the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron V1 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Program V1 with QMK & VIA

With full QMK and VIA support, you can easily program and remap each key on the keyboard. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, even the knob, and more. 

Program V1 with QMK & VIA

Get the V1 keymap working on VIA

To get started, please follow the steps: Download the appropriate kemap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the V1 keymap working on VIA.

 Since the VIA code for the V1 is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, so you will need to manually download and import the V1 keymap.

Note: Only the right JSON file can be input, please find the right version keymap JSON file which matches your keyboard to download.

Hot-swappable.

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights.

The south-facing RGB LED is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.

Note: The V1's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.

Pre-lubed Keychron K Pro Switch

By optimizing the switch mold, the K Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the K Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.

Gateron G Pro Switch Features
All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less shaky. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron V1 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.
